Hi Workaway community! My name is Lilly and I'm so happy to have recently discovered Workaway after a close friend had a great experience and recommended it. I went to school for Educational Theatre and most of my jobs have been in the theatre or working with children with various developmental disorders- I'm planning on getting a degree to become a drama therapist one of these days! For now, though, I am hoping to dedicate this time of my life to self-discovery, giving, learning, and exploring different places around the world until I find a place that feels like home. I recently got my yoga teaching certification and had the opportunity to live at an ashram which I LOVED! I'm looking for other experiences like this; a communal living space where everyone has the common goal of being and doing good. So far I’ve completed two Workaway stays- one at an off-grid campsite in Alabama and the other at an Alpaca farm in Tennessee. I love nature, animals, cooking, hiking, kayaking, dancing, singing, music, yoga, meditation, gardening, basically anything creative or outdoors! I'm also a dedicated vegan and somewhere that could be accommodating to that would be awesome (:
-Extensive experience in childcare from infant to late elementary including children with various developmental disorders.
-Acting, playwriting, directing, stage management
-music: mainly a singer, but some piano
-animal caretaking (I’ve learned about the care of chickens, cows, alpacas, and bees through other workaway experiences)
-great vegan cook
-some experience gardening (especially turmeric and ginger)- would love to learn more!
-herbal tea making
-ayurvedic food preparation and knowledge
-interior design: great at thrifting/antiquing and transforming spaces on a budget
-grant proposal writing/ writing in general
I enjoy having a routine and I prefer waking up early/going to sleep somewhat early. I love making floral arrangements and playing games of all kinds! I'm a great cook and would prefer to stay somewhere where I would have access to cooking for myself and others- I find it to be therapeutic (: I would also love to be immersed in an environment that would help me detach from my phone and technology in general!
